Uma Gets Her Key Back
You can go home again after all, at least if you’re Uma Thurman. The My Super Ex-Girlfriend actress (and real-life ex-girlfriend of hotelier turned real-estate developer André Balazs) not only escaped the city’s recent heat wave by fleeing to her old stomping ground, Fire Island—she’s also just signed on to purchase a Gramercy Park duplex in the same building where she lived with Ethan Hawke. (And yes, it comes with a key to the park.) City records show that Thurman paid $2.65 million for the apartment a few floors above her and Hawke’s former abode.
Farther downtown, Horst Rechelbacher, environmentalist and founder of the ecofriendly Aveda beauty products empire, has just closed on a penthouse in a white-glove Art Deco prewar on lower Fifth Avenue overlooking Washington Square Park. Though it has only two bedrooms, the co-op sold for $4.3 million.
